Adventure is the second studio album by American rock band Televisionreleased in April by Elektra Records. Adventure was released in April It was issued in standard black vinyl in the US, but in red vinyl matching the cover and inner sleeve in the UK. Upon its release it fared worse in the charts than its predecessor in the United States but entered the charts at No. Ken Who Pays The Ferryman - Francis Goya & Les Helleniques* - Souvenirs Aus Griechenland of Rolling Stone wrote "By daring to be different, Adventure lives up to its title, but it also comes as something of a disappointment because it lacks the jagged tension and mysterious drama that imbued last year's Marquee Moon with such dark but lucid power.
The difference is more a function of material than of the new album's relatively clean, calm, reflective mood. The lyrics on Marquee Moon were shot through with visionary surprises that never let up. These are comparatively songlike, their apercus concentrated in hook lines that are surrounded by more quotidian stuff.
On the album's sound Mark Deming of AllMusic writes "Where Marquee Moon was direct and straightforward in its approach, with the subtleties clearly in the performance and not in the production, Adventure is a decidedly softer and less aggressive Careful - Television - Adventure , and while John Jansen's production isn't intrusive, it does round off the edges of the band's sound Careful - Television - Adventure a way Andy Johns' work on the first album did not.
